I just want to make this more public than my habit cal, if I may. I failed today (Sundays are N days for me). At first it was a minor slip-up, then it tumbled into a binge. I feel gross, physically and spiritually.

The minor slip up thing: definitely a "fencing" problem. it's happened a lot lately.

This week I WILL get back on track. Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla.

Betty

Betty....

I'm sorry today was a yucky day. Good for you though that you're determined to get back on track. You CAN do this and tomorrow will be better...

Hi Betty, just curious why Sundays aren't S days for you?
They seem to be the one day of the week that should be a mental wind down.
Hope you can bounce back and come back strong!
Peace and Love
Cool Debs

Betty, please forgive yourself and move on. When I fail, it often can be linked back to not having a satisfying meal that day. And when I am thinking clearly, instead of indulging in a snack, I will have one of the "default" items that I try to keep on hand, like a glass of milk or juice, or some hot cocoa.

Best of luck as you continue No S-ing!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Crazy Cat: It's true, I should have just had a latte and waited it out, but Rolling Eyes ...

Deb: I started with Friday and Saturday as S days because 90% of our special dinners are on Friday and because our end of the week meetings on Friday afternoon at work are catered with these unresistable yummy treats.

Also, I have a lot of vacation time and I wanted to learn how to stay on habit at home too.

Also, for me emotional eating is definitely stress related. When I have time to make good meals (eg on a sunday) I don't (usually! Embarassed ) have as many slip ups.

Hey Betty -

I can very much identify with your minor slip up, to the full-out binge. And the feeling terrible physically and spiritually.

But, so much of what I see with all these No-S veterans is about NOT having the guilt about it, forgiving, and moving on. It sounds like you are doing that. Great work. Good luck getting back on track. You can do it. I find it inspiring when we "fail" and then keep going. More inspiring than being "perfect" the whole journey.

And, some day soon, I'll probably need someone to "feed" those same words back to me.
